West Ham eye West Brom striker’s release clause

The Daily Mirror reports that West Ham United are interested in West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon, as incoming boss Manuel Pellegrini says the club needs four or five players to make the side competitive next season.

The Venezuelan striker is available for £16 million due to a release clause in his contract following West Brom’s relegation to the Championship, and the Midlanders may be forced to sell him as they look to balance the books and rebuild under newly appointed full-time boss Darren Moore.

Pelligrini worked with Rondon when they were both at Spanish side Malaga together, and the 28-year old may be a good foil to work with West Ham main striker, Marko Arnautuvic.

They are not the only club interested in the 28-year old, however. Both Tottenham and Chelsea were interested in the player in January, and newly-promoted Cardiff City are also reported to be monitoring developments.
